I HAVE HERE a news item that alert reader Diane Moore clipped out of the Oct. 21, 2002, issue of the Pana, Ill., News-Palladium (actual motto: "Containing More News About the Pana Trade Area Than All Other Newspapers in the World"). This item consists of a grainy black-and-white photograph of two men, one in bib overalls. They're sitting at a table or bar, looking at the camera with serious, somewhat self-conscious expressions. In front of them is a white piece of paper, on which sits a small, darkish object.

Some call it the cat condo. Others the Clinton Street Beach and Cat Club.Twenty to 40 wild alley cats live in a secluded and dilapidated southeast Baltimore fertilizer bag warehouse overlooking the harbor. They are fed by a band of animal lovers, some of them anonymous, who make daily trips there. City police also keep an eye on the animals' safety.Canton's cat condo is more properly known as "15 Building," a wooden structure on the grounds of the busy Lebanon Chemical Corp. in the 2500 block of S. Clinton St.For as long as anyone can remember, this remarkable and highly independent animal colony has lived within the joists and crawl spaces of a graffiti-covered building.

Dr. Benjamin Carson, a Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon, will travel to South Africa next month to join 24 doctors in the separation of Siamese twin girls who are attached at the backs of their heads.At a press briefing today, Dr. Carson said the twins, who are 6 months old, appear to have separate brains but share a major blood vessel. Most likely, surgeons will have to split the vessel and reconstruct the halves so that each child has a functioning blood supply.Never before have surgeons successfully divided conjoined twins who share tissue inside the skull.

PRETORIA, South Africa -- Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Benjamin S. Carson called it "the most complicated procedure I have ever been involved with" -- a 20-hour operation to separate Siamese twin girls that turned into an emergency procedure when one of the 9-month-old patients went into cardiac arrest.Nthabiseng Makwaeba died hours after the operation ended. Her sister, Mahlatse, with whom she had been joined at the back of her head, was in "very, very critical condition" after being placed on life support systems to relieve pressure on her heart and lungs.

The world first saw Ciera and Tiera Bennett as 3-month-old Siamese twins, bundled in the arms of the doctor who had spent 7 1/2 hours in delicate surgery separating the tiny bodies joined from chest to abdomen.But the girls remained out of the spotlight until their 10th birthday yesterday, when their family went public to tell how they bucked the odds -- not just by surviving, but by pulling through with few medical difficulties."With all the problems we see with children, it is satisfying to see two who have done so well," said Dr. J. Laurance Hill, who led a team of doctors in the 1986 operation at the University of Maryland Medical Center.

WICHITA, Kan. -- She was born a Siamese twin, and her father kidnapped her sister from the hospital days after they were separated. Her mother disappeared even before the kidnapping; her father went to jail for murder not long after. As she grew, she was moved from home to home. At 1, she was beaten. One of her foster mothers was stomped to death by gang members.But Anna Cates didn't give up. And on June 1, the shy young woman with a winning smile will march in graduation with other members of the Wichita South High School Class of 1995.

PHILADELPHIA -- Hours after the surgery that gave Angela Lakeberg most of a heart she had shared with her Siamese twin sister, the infant showed signs of continued improvement -- enough to fuel her parents' hopes that she might defy the odds.The 7-week-old baby reportedly was sucking her thumb, wetting diapers and squeezing her parents' fingers yesterday. But the ultimate delight, said a beaming Kenneth Lakeberg during a morning news conference: "Her eyes were open. . . . It was unbelievable!"

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The 2-month-old girl doctors hoped to save with a surgical separation from her twin sister has a very good chance for recovery, her doctors say.But today or tomorrow, or the next day, maybe, as her parents hold her as much as possible, the other twin will die because she has no kidney.The decision to separate conjoined twins Brittany and Tiffany Lewis -- knowing Tiffany would die as a result -- was gut-wrenching for their parents, Kenneth and Angela Lewis of Corbin. But it was the best option because leaving the girls joined would have placed both of them at risk, doctors said yesterday.
